Here are the Beatles lessons you will get lifetime access too
1) Across The Universe
Across The Universe is a song written by John Lennon that appeared on Let It Be. It opens with a couple of distinctive chords moving up and down the neck, then settles into a nice chord progression in the key of D. There are a few timing changes involved, as in many Beatles tunes.
Blackbird is a song every guitar player should learn how to play. This solo tune of Paul McCartney's uses a steady alternating picking technique that is a great place for beginning fingerpickers to start. The lesson also talks a bit about Paul's unorthodox technique that is on a more intermediate to advanced level.
3) Day Tripper
Day Tripper is probably one of the best-recognized riff-based songs in the history of rock and roll. The main part of the song was probably written by John Lennon and that is mostly what this lesson focuses on. The tune then includes some barre chords in the chorus.
4) Dear Prudence
Dear Prudence is one of John Lennon's delicate fingerpicking pieces featuring the Travis-style accompaniment he learned from Donovan during their visit to India in 1968. It is played in Dropped D Tuning and is very consistent in the techniques needed.
5) Norwegian Wood
Norwegian Wood is a simple folk song, written by John Lennon that includes a strumming technique where the melody is picked out on the middle strings in the course of strumming the chords. This is a bit of a simple example of a Chord Solo.
George Harrison really started coming into his own as a songwriter near the end of the Beatles career and Something may be his crowning achievement as a member of the group. This lesson looks mainly at the way George played it solo, in the key of A, the way it appeared on the Anthology album.
7) Two Of Us
Two Of Us is another McCartney tune from the Let It Be album that is mostly a simple strummer but includes a nice opening riff, as well as a few time signature changes that make it important to count carefully.
8) Yellow Submarine
Yellow Submarine was written by John and Paul as a tune for Ringo to sing. It is a very basic Campfire song, although there are some one-beat changes that can be somewhat challenging. Level 3 One of Paul's greatest songs *Yesterday*can be played with the simple strumming accompaniment that Paul used or plucked fingerstyle. This lesson looks at both approaches, as well as a way to turn it into a Chord Solo.
10) You've Got To Hide Your Love Away
You've Got To Hide Your Love Away is one of John Lennon's folk-style songs that is from the movie Help. It includes mostly chords in the key of G that all keep your 4^th finger on the high G (1^st string, 3^rd fret). It also includes a nice descending bass run leading from D to G that occurs in many other songs.
1) And I Love Her
And I Love Her is one or our most requested Beatles songs. This multi-part Target Lesson teaches both the rhythm guitar part and a short look at George's lead.
Birthday is a classic example of taking a simple riff, dropping it into a 12-bar blues format, adding some catchy vocals over a short chord progression, throwing in a little drum break and lead guitar fill, and creating great rock and roll in a matter of just a couple of days. Paul came up with the main riff and had most of the song done by the time the rest of the band was back in the studio. This lesson includes a Campfire Version, the way I like to have beginners learn the basics of the song, as well as a One-Man Band Version where the rhythm guitar and bass parts are combined into something a bit more challenging. The lead section includes some techniques more commonly done on an electric guitar, bends, slides, and quick hammer-on pull-off combinations.
3) Hey Jude
A short lesson on Hey Jude takes Paul McCartney's piano tune and looks at it as a simple strumming song, more in the Campfire style. It also includes a sing-along and some tips on turning it into an instrumental by picking out the melody, although many of the specific details are left up to the student.
4) I'll Follow The Sun
I'll Follow The Sun is a very early Paul McCartney song with a very simple chord progression and short lead. This Campfire song is very playable by beginning guitar players as soon as you can play an F chord, although the barred version is preferable. We also look at incorporating the 8-note lead into the strumming.
5) I've Just Seen A Face
I've Just Seen A Face is a bluegrass flavored flatpicking song of Paul McCartney's from the Help album. The accompaniment includes a fast country pattern of hitting bass notes, some of which are hammered on, and also uses passing notes to connect the chords. The lesson also goes over two acoustic guitar parts played as an intro, and George's short lead break.
In 1968 the Beatles learned a bit about fingerpicking from Donovan while they were in India for a short time. This resulted in a much more refined guitar sound for a few songs on the 'White Album', including John Lennon's Julia. This lesson uses John's repetitive alternating bass fingerpicking pattern with some unusual chord voicings, and shows exactly how he played the original, including a capo at the second fret.
7) Strawberry Fields Forever
By late 1966 the Beatles were into heavy production and processing in the studio, being free to spend as much time as they wanted on any particular song. This period of creativity produced some of their most elaborate songs, most of which might not seem adaptable to playing solo and singing. However, most of them started off being simple guitar songs. Strawberry Fields Forever, started by John when he was shooting a movie in Spain, began this way and we are fortunate to have access to some very early recordings as John was in the habit of recording all his ideas as they developed. This lesson combines a few versions but is mostly taken from the one released as Take 1, on Anthology 2, with the addition of the introduction arranged for solo guitar.
8) Ticket To Ride
Another entry in our shorter series is Ticket To Ride also from Help. This is a good example of how a songwriter (Paul McCartney) can take a very simple melodic riff derived from a chord, and craft a brilliant piece of pop. A few barre chords are needed but otherwise this is a very accessible tune.
9) We Can Work It Out
Many of the Beatles songs make great Campfire songs and We Can Work It *Out*is an excellent addition to our library. As simple as many of their tunes are, pretty much every one has some unusual twists and turns that offer great learning opportunities. We Can Work It Out has a very interesting rhythmic change, as well as some chords with unusual bass notes. We even attempt a multi-fret barre at one point.
10) While My Guitar Gently Weeps
Another one of the top requested lesson here at TG was While My Guitar Gently Weeps, by George Harrison. The song first appeared on the Beatles' White Album, officially called The Beatles, and this lesson looks at the rhythm guitar part to that that version, as well as George's acoustic demo version that appeared on Anthology 3.
1) Here Comes The Sun
Here Comes The Sun is a lesson we have had a partial version of here at TG since the early days. Neil has finally put together the complete version for our Target Program. The song was written by George Harrison in Eric Clapton's garden, as the winter of 1969 was turning to spring in England. This lesson goes into detail about the techniques George used to create this acoustic masterpiece.
2) I Feel Fine
I Feel Fine is mostly a simple, but effective riff derived from the blues scale and applied to a modified 12-bar format. This song is also famous for being the first to use controlled feedback on a recording. Level6
3) I Want You
I Want You is a song with two distinct personalities, a gritty, bluesy section where the lead guitar doubles John's vocal, and a semi-classical keyboard arpeggio with a somewhat sinister sound. Both parts are addressed in this lesson with the arpeggios being done fingerstyle and the bluesy section with standard flatpicking technique.
4) I'll Be Back
I'll Be Back is another example of a great Beatles tune that is mostly strumming but includes a clever opening lick, as well as shifts in tonality from major to minor, unlike anything else rock musicians were doing at the time.
5) I'm Looking Through You
Rubber Soul included many acoustic oriented songs and Paul's I'm Looking Through You was one of those that had a nice folk-swing feel to it. This lesson covers the way it was played on that original release, as well as an earlier outtake that appeared on Beatles Anthology 2 in the mid-1990s. That version had more of a bluesy feel to it. The lesson also includes a short organ fill that fits nicely into a barred G chord. Level 4
6) In My Life
In My Life might be considered the first song to take the Beatles to a higher level as songwriters. It appears to be a little more collaborative than most of their songs but John and Paul's recollections of its beginnings differ somewhat. In this lesson we look at a basic rhythm accompaniment and George's opening lead lick, as well as a slightly more complex accompaniment to the keyboard solo.
7) Let It Be
Let It Be is a great strumming and singing tune with a chord progression that is a lot of fun to practice playing leads using the Major Pentatonic scale. This 4-Part TARGET lesson covers the rhythm guitar part and some of the piano fills, as well as a discussion on lead playing in general.
In 1965 The Beatles sound was changing, as it continued to do for the next 5 years, and Rubber Soul, released late that year included quite a few acoustic songs. Michelle, written mainly by Paul using bits and pieces from something he originally had as a lighthearted French sounding ditty, is a great example of one of these. The guitar is played with a capo at the 5th fret, creating a somewhat delicate sound. This lesson includes the guitar accompaniment, as well as the short lead incorporated into a Chord Solo.
9) Penny Lane
A song that on first glance doesn't seem very playable, Penny Lane can be done by transposing it into a guitar friendly key (D Major), and focusing more on the moving bass part rather than rapid chord changes.
10) With A Little Help From My Friends
There are many nuances in the recorded version of With A Little Help From My Friends that are pretty challenging to incorporate into a solo guitar accompaniment version. This lesson talks about complex time signatures, works on a percussive strumming pattern using a lot of barre chords, and includes some of George's lead fills. Level 5
